I found and adapted  this easy Kimchi recipe from MyRecipes.com. It's a very easy straightforward recipe using simple ingredients except for the chilli flakes (avialable from Shine Korea) Never attempted making Kimchi before. But am tempted to try this recipe.

After 2 hours rinse the cabbage 3 times to get rid of the salt.
